- 5th February 2016
At approximately 13:20hrs both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked to assist a solo walker on Djouce mountain. The woman was descending the mountain when she became disorientated in cloud. On realising that she had lost her way, the woman took shelter and called for help.
Mountain Rescue personnel established communications with the woman, and advised that she retrace her steps back to the summit cairn. Visibility soon cleared at the summit and the woman began making her way down. MR personnel met her on her descent and escorted the woman to her car. The incident was stood down at 14:34hrs.
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved.
